This homeowner in Calgary, Alberta had encountered issues with water leaking in their basement through foundation cracks around the perimeter of the basement. Wanting to eliminate the water issues permanently in the basement and regain the valuable space, they contacted the experts at Doug Lacey's Basement Systems.
A System Design Specialist was able assess the situation and provide the homeowners with a FREE, no obligation quote designed specifically to address all of the homeowners needs and concerns. Our Production Team was then able to then come to the home to install our patented WaterGuard® drainage system. The WaterGuard® Below-Floor Drain System is designed with a built-in wall flange, which extends up your basement wall by 3/8", capturing any water leaking from the walls will move downward and behind this flange where it is then directed to the SuperSump® sump pump system. A full-featured system, SuperSump® includes the best components available including a top-rated 1/3HP Zoeller® pump is designed for reliability & high-volume pumping. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump® battery backup sump pump included with this system design, set at the highest level of the basin, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery! From there the system will discharge any water entering the sump pump basin to the exterior of the home passing through our patented IceGuard® system, an anti-freeze fitting that is installed outside of your home and ejects water away from the foundation in the event that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. And finally the discharge line has been buried below-grade out of plain sight ending off with a Bubbler Pot away from the home installed flush with the grass on the lawn. The Bubbler Pot is designed in this way to make it easier to service and also the design allows the homeowner to tend to their yard without the discharge line getting in the way. This homeowner can now rest easy knowing that they can make use of their basement once again.
